My Tour Experience at Aviva Senior Living

This was a good community. It was more rehab focused and short stays for the residents.

Not The Best

This facility is old and not maintained well. Staff have been leaving like there's a virus in this facility, but it's due to working conditions. If you are thinking of moving a loved one into this facility, please be sure to check out other places as well. The food is not up to par and 99% of the residents have been complaining about it for awhile. The units aren't cleaned well and the carpets throughout the building are very dirty. There are many activities for residents to participate in, which is a plus. The highlight of this place are the residents. The ones I've met are very warm and caring.

Tour of Aviva

I was not impressed with Aviva. Right when I pulled up it just looked old, crowded and not inviting. When you walk in it is small and feels very institutional. It is very expensive for what they offer and you have to show them 4 years of assets to even move in. It may be the right fit for others, but it definitely was not the right fit for us.

A Great Place to Live and Work

A great community full of life and resident involvement. Amazing residents who are so willing to share with each other and the Sarasota community at large. Families are supportive and there are some great volunteers who give generously of their time and talents at Aviva. I've worked here five years and after 30 years in the industry have finally found my home. I would be happy to retire from the workforce here and transition to life as a resident someday!

Feels like Home

The moment I walked through the Aviva doors I felt at home. There is a calmness and sense of peace that I knew I wanted to be a part of. A lot of companies and facilities strive to reach this level of accomplishment. Aviva has not only reached it, but surpassed it. This is a "must see" campus to visit when making the difficult decision to place a loved one where more daily assistance is available.

Happy with the experience

I would want others to know that for my brother, he was only here for one year and he was very very happy. We were very pleased with the experience at Aviva and I would absolutely recommend to others who are looking.

Another well managed facility. Both staff and residents were friendly. Menu looked very good. Many things to do every day. Would be comfortable living here. Again, cost is the driving factor. 2-BR price is a little over $5000.00/month. We will keeplooking.

financial abuse

My Mom was promised a 2 bedroom for the price of a 1 bedroom and moved in 2 yrs ago. It was promised to her "in perpetuity". That promise was just a sham. They are creatively and effectively increasing her rent astronomically so that she will probably be paying the cost of a 2 bedroom in the near future. Her monthly rent has gone up aprox. $600 per month since she moved in [date removed]. It is my understanding that many others came in at the same time on this "deal" -- its your basic "bait and switch". Otherwise, my Mom loves it at Aviva & really doesn't want to leave, but we are very bothered by their lack of concern about her finances and their unethical billing

Have not visited, but from the information I received, it appears to have all or most amenities and activities I would like. A bit more expensive than most, and the non-refundable administrative upfront fees are high. Being a non-practicing Catholic, I am less interested in the Judaic-oriented activities and related costs for them.

Phenomenal all-around senior care!

This campus has everything that any senior could ever imagine, and they are constantly making renovations! Three levels of care are available (Independent, Assisted Living, and Skilled Nursing) to fit anyone's needs, especially when an unexpected change in your health can occur. An on-site nurse, pharmacy, and home visits from the doctor make everything as convenient as possible for the residents here. All of the staff that I have encountered are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Daily on and off-site activities are also planned to keep everyone busy and entertained! The leasing team here will do everything possible to make your transition into Aviva flawless!

Back to Health

I was admitted to Benderson five years ago after a lung operation that left me helpless. Could not walk,talk and could barely breathe. The care that I received there after two months was fantastic. The nurses and aides were wonderful and the food delicious. I am forever grateful to Aviva for returning me to my former active self!!
